Mutiple Cards on 2 computers?

Currently I just have one HD ATI card on my main computer. I would like to install 2 more HD cards, but think I would like them on a networked PC. I do play a lot of games on my "main" computer. I think I would just like to use the ATI for live TV or if I need to record 3 things at one time. Can I setup a priority on which order Sage will use the cards? Can I add 2 cards to a networked PC without purchasing another license? Can I play Sage HD content via Zoomplayer?

How does the AVerMedia A180 work with 2 cards in the same system? I was thinking about getting 2 of these for the basement computer to record with. This computer has a 1.7 p4 with 512 ram. I do have 2003 installed on this computer and use it as a domain controller/media server now. The CPU load is normally low on this machine, but I am not sure how much load 2 cards would be if they are both recording at the same time.

Stealth's HD Network Encoder should let you put them in another PC.

HD card CPU usage is negligible since there's no encoding done.
